Movie Review

Fight Club, Modern Day Dark Philosophy

“Fight Club” starring Brad Pitt and Edward Harrison Norton, rate 8.8 in IMDb, when I saw the name of this movie and trailer, I can’t imagine this is such an awesome movie, as same as usual, today, I’m gonna introduce to everyone this thought-provoking movie.

You ask me is this movie good? I will tell you this movie deserve you to immerse for two hours, most of the plot is about dark humor, two men opinions will make you eye-opener, and never forget.

It explores the common problems in modern society, and the most pathological side, but also in this pathological, still has a little truth, like I won’t say a good guy will be complete justice, and a bad guy will be completely evil, human cannot be so extreme.

The Life You Desire

Have you thought about why you study? Why did you work? Why you try so hard to get everything?

The answer is you want your ideal house and car, everything you want, money will satisfy you, that is why you study hard. An ironic thing is, learning a new knowledge only to get better material life, some contradictions, right?

My friend used to ask me: “Why are people working so hard?”

My answer was: “People working hard just for don’t want to work.”

He smiles at me, and nodded, never think I can convince a person by a few seconds. I want to ask you in this world, what is the same as a job? What kind of the thing is keep doing so hard just for never do this thing again?

Something you will do it because it arouses your interest, you are willing to spend time on it, but the job isn’t, everyone gambling on everything only because they don’t want to do the same, it’s a bit sad, but this is the world of capitalism.

And when you get everything, most of the people only after a while, those high-priced things will become mediocre, because rich in material life is too much important to you.

In fact, the thing you bought cannot on your behalf, you know a rich man not necessarily good, anyone is. status and good and evil are a totally different thing, you know that, but you still fully pursue it.

The Dream You Desire

What do you want to do? No…… I’m not saying the position you can make a lot of money, I’m trying to say is, if any work no salary in the world, What do you want to do most? What do you want to contribute? To this world, to the people surrounding you?

Now you will find out everyone’s answers is totally different, on the first question, there will be 90% people have a boring answer, but on the second answer you will find out the chances of repeating answers are very low, why? Because everybody’s goal wasn’t money anymore, is the self in front of the screen.

Life actually very long but sometimes also hurried, just imagine, your life actually will be very normal, then if according to your current life plan, do you really have what you want to do most? Will no regrets before you close your eyes forever?

If tomorrow is the end of the world, will you start to regret now?

Rich man not necessarily feeling that life is very beautiful, the opposite ordinary person does not necessarily complain about life, that depends on all your actions. Of course, you can get yourself a lot of excuses, “This cannot work”, “This risk is too high”, “I have a safer choice”, look at these words, kind of familiar, huh?

So how do you know if you choose the right path? Ask yourself: “If tomorrow is the end of the world, am I regretting what I am doing?”, if the answer is no, then congratulations, you found your way.

You will only live your own life, not anybody else, you will compromise because you are afraid.

The Look You Desire

Actually, everybody’s life has more than 80% has long been decided, the reason is our environment and family, in fact, human so-called “free will” is not free at all, we more like “The Matrix”, everyone is the code that was entered.

Of course, you still have the ability to change the status quo……Can you? Your dress is completely unaffected by the outside world? Did you forget your talents for life? Everything we know is actually created by others, And we fall into this bottomless trap.

Where does our desire for famous brand come from? Because it is so expensive so you can show off to your friends, that gives you a lot of sense of accomplishment. Famous brand has no difference with normal goods, just because the logo so people will pay more money on that, rather than helping people who really need it.

Where does our pursuit of appearance come from? Change your original appearance, just to let other people like yourself at first sight. We won’t waste time and money to enrich the inner self, instead, we spend a lot of money to change the appearance, so that people like you at first sight, even you won’t have any communication with the 95% of them.

You will gradually discover, you will never become the one you want to be.

The Classic Movie Will Makes You Watch Again

To conclude, this movie is quite interesting, it almost satirizes everyone’s pursuit of life and lifestyle, just use the way it is quite dark but interesting, is the movie you must watch in your life!

It has no special effects or a luxurious scene, this movie just like the position it wants to express, it uses its an own way to tell you the story, although not so gorgeous, it is enough to make a wave in your heart.

And also don’t be fooled by its title, its content is definitely totally different from what you imagined! If you feel a little disappointed with life, this movie maybe will make you suddenly see the light, “Fight Club” is more meaningful than what you can realize in college life.

    Thanks for writing this review on Fight Club, modern day dark philosophy, you really do a great job writing this review, although this is my first time of hearing or reading about this movies .but going through this review I wish to read more and more about it or watch the movie instantly if time will permit me. It a nice movie to watch with family 

    • SkyPath

      Thank you very much, but actually, this movie is rated R, so I don’t think this movie is great to watch with family! But it is a great movie you can watch with your friends or girlfriend! This is a very meaningful movie!

  • alexandra

    I love how you say that people work hard so they do not have to work – this is brilliant and also very true. I do believe it is very important to work with something that you love and I think that it is great that this is something that you mention. I love the movie fight club and if someone is looking for a movie to watch on a friday night I would recommend Fight club. The movie has everything. I love your review of it because it is done in an unusual way. Great review with a twist just like you say.

    • SkyPath

      Yes, work with something that you love is very important and definitely a great way, but it is very hard to do this, like what I said, everyone’s interest will absolutely different, so for some people, their interest is a great niche or a job, but for some people, their interest is not that good enough to make money.

      Fight Club is an excellent movie, might change your life because it discusses many issues about life and job, the two things we must face in our life.

  • Darc'ie Murray

    ‘Humans cannot be so extreme.’ An excellent point! A lot of movies these days can over exaggerate situations and behaviours and it gives the illusion that life is black and white. It isn’t. No one is born good or evil- events in life shape us and evoke change for both better and for worse.

    This is a nice website you have going here and your review was very informative. I always like doing research on a movie before watching it- and I never really mind spoilers. This sounds like a good one! I will put it on my list.

    Do you have a favourite movie of all time?

    • SkyPath

      Yes, no one is born good or evil, sometimes we get shaped by our surroundings!

      Actually, this “Fight Club” is becoming my favorite movie of all time, but it is really hard to tell, there are too many excellent movies!

  • Sammynathaniels

    Whenever I see this movie, it reminds me of the essence of life and the purpose of pursuing our dreams. It keeps these questions racing in my mind.. What do I really want in life? Is it happiness, money or peace of mind?. How can I make my life worth living?? These questions and many others have made me have a rethink about my life. I now see a clearer picture of life 

    • SkyPath

      Yes, I will always like to think about this question, what we live for? We always try to leaving something in the world before we’ve gone, for me, I still don’t know the answer, but the one thing I very sure is, I will live for myself, not for other people.

    Hello,

     I like that are writing satirically, it takes an open mind and a fair command of English language to read in between the line. Human has long been seen a reflexion on his though and wishes. The desire to standout , live large, and getting recognised by other, is good nborn and can be remove from Man’s genetics. 

    Though you have satirically passed a message, I want to believe that the movie , Fight Club will definitely be a movie to enjoy.

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, you have a great opinion! Fight Club makes people thinking about this question, that’s why it is one of the best movies of all time!

  • Tolu

    Your preview of the fight club modern day dark philosophy movie is thought-provoking. I can relate with this; everyone is in a rat race, always on the move, chasing and been chased by one thing or the other. Everyone has a different opinion of what life is, and no one in his right mind would want to ‘parasite’ on anyone. As a man especially, the responsibilities on your shoulders are huge, and every day is an opportunity to work on your dreams by fighting with your all for it. I would definitely get the movie to watch

    • SkyPath

      Thank you! You got that right, everyone has a different opinion of what life is, so don’t be limited for others, live for your own, that’s the answer this movie giving to us!

  • Olalekan

    Thanks for sharing this article on fight club, modern day dark philosophy. I enjoyed reading your review and I must say that this is a movie that everyone must watch. I watched the trailer in this article and I discovered that there is more hidden which I must watch. The trailer really awesome. I have to watch the movie at all cost. Thanks for sharing this review l. 

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, yes, I hope everybody can watch this movie as soon as they can! It passed a lot of important messages about life!

  • Mike Adkins

    This post is really interesting. I love this film and have always seen beyond the obvious “tale” that the story tells but your observations have clarified this really well….This is a thought provoking post. Kind Regards Mike

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much! This movie has such a great point about our life, you will be inspired after you watch this movie!

  • Ivan Brozincevic

    Fight Club is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen in my life! It’s one of those movies which has to be seen for a few time to understand its message. I like your article a lot! Great work!

    • SkyPath

      I agree with you! One of the best movies I have ever seen, the meaning of this movie is not just for the kids in 90s, also for the kids in the modern day! Thank you!

  • Jeffrey Teo

    Your post is very provoking and it made me ponder real hard on the question on If tomorrow is the end of the world, will you start to regret now? Sad to say, my answer is more towards regret. But I hope that when i get over some of the challenges I face in life now, I hope I would have more time to do things that are more fulfilling and meaningful.

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, everyone wish can have more time to the thing to make life better an meaningful, me either, this movie taught me so many things I can’t learn at school, at my job, sometimes, a great movie like a course, always give you a lot of reflection!

  • Ola

    I have watched different films starring Brad Pitt and Edward Harrison Norto, so I can attest to the fact that they are great actors with a difference.  I havent watched fight club, modern day dark but I have this conviction it would be one of the best films of the century. This is a lovely review

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, actually for me, I haven’t seen too many movies of Brad Pitt, same as Edward Harrison, but this movie really makes me give all the respect to these two excellent actors, you cannot deny these two men with a great chemical reaction, not any one of them stole the spot, they share the spot, that’s why this movie so great, sometimes two main actors will have a bad movie, because always have one man more prominent, but you won’t see this problem in “Fight Club”!

  • Kenechi

    Ahh I have already got few stories about this movie and I will love to watch it again and again. It is quite different from most of the movies I have watched. It reflects so much on the realities of life and the things that are obtainable which we desire, dream of, and hope to get.  Only the few stories I got from a friend really made my day. It’s a must watch movie.

    • SkyPath

      Yes, it is a movie everyone must watch, pursue the life you want, pursue the dream you want, pursue the true self, sometimes these will be affected by reality, the reality is such a painful thing, we can’t avoid, we must be facing, it is hard to keep yourself in any kinds of situations, but I think in the end, if you want, everyone can get what’s they deserve, that’s human, don’t bow down to the reality, face it, take it, and becomes what you want to be.

  • Louis

    Hello,

    You have described fight club in a way that interests me. A lot of us work for money, I have that thoughts too. If there were no salaries I’ll be doing something totally different.

    I really can’t wait to see this movie, because it seemingly motivated this philosophical piece. Will make a purchase and watch it over the weekend, thanks for the recommendation.

    Regards

    • SkyPath

      Yes, sometimes we will give up our dream because of money, today’s society kills many people’s dream, of course, some of the people still can use their dream to make money, after you watch this movie, you will know how important to keep yourself.

  • Mikay2019

    Thanks  for sharing such a wonderful review. Obviously, any movie that has Brad Pitt starring in it must be very interesting.  From your review, the movie will definitely be a good one because we all can relate to it. In life, we all strive for better life for ourselves and our family. I would love to know the movie rating 

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, this movie rate 8.8 in IMDb, in Rotten Tomatoes, has 79% fresh by Tomatometer, and 96% for audience score, and for me, I will rate this 4.8 out of 5 stars!

  • Polycarp Momoh

    Thanks for writing this review on Fight club. I’m so wanting to watch this movie. I love the story line summarised on your blog and I love Brad Pitt and any movie he act. And the talk about working so hard so you don’t work is soulful I can relate very well to that. Like why are we stressing so much so we can buy food and buy drugs to relieve stress?? Well life still goes on lol. Thanks again 

  • Adyns68

    Hello dear

    is this a new movie? I don’t think I have seen this before. But the review is quite detailed. I think I will watch it next in my movie marathon of this month. Thanks for the review, it is quite informative and even for someone who doesn’t know the movie I feel like I’ve seen it already!

  • Lynda

    Thank you for the thought-provoking review of this movie. We don’t slow down long enough sometimes to contemplate the future beyond the money but the inner being of our human future. I feel we should take a step back every once in a while and look into ourselves with honesty and clarity to see what we are becoming and is it what we truly want to be. If not we need a change. You gave me that moment of stepping back through this review. Thank you for that.

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, indeed, I think I proud myself the most is I will always be myself, we need to change ourselves to become what we want to be, sometimes is hard because of the surroundings or your background, but for me, it didn’t change we are an individual, we are human, we can change everything if we want! Thanks again!

  • Lynda

    I forgot to add that the depth of your interview was something that made me want to look inward and not to compare with other individuals but to compare with my vision of what I wish to attain. The “rat race” of humanity is not where I wish to be. You have given me lots to think and reflect on 

    • SkyPath

      “Rat race” is the problem of this world right now, thank you for sharing your thought, that’s why I like to see, after watching my reviews can give people reflect, I’m happy to see this! Thank you so much!
